Yes and No. I think that whenever a number is multiplied by infinity the result cannot be determined. But if you think then any number on multiplication with infinity must be infinity. But there is no comparison as such possible as infinity is more of a concept then a number. Achal Jain · 6 months, 1 week ago

@Achal Jain Actually the real thought is as follows : We have heard this a number of times that an individual is infinite in itself . So his/her potential is also infinite . Lets say there is a situation in which that person who is infinite( as far as his/her limits are concerned) when put on intellectual battle with approximately 7 billion people on this planet and if calculated their potential will be calculated as (7billion-1 ) times infinity.I subtracted 1 bcoz its that one individual himself/herself . So his/her potential equal to potential of all other people combined ? Saraswati Sharma · 6 months, 1 week ago
